Circa Survive – The Amulet

Posted: November 29, 2017 in Vinyl
Tags: , ,

Circa Survive is back with their sixth studio album, The Amulet. The band’s latest effort is their best since Blue Sky Noise in my opinion. It’s definitely better than Decensus and Violent Waves. I know Blue Sky Noise is a bit of a jumping off point as many fans feel it’s too big a departure from the band’s tried and true, familiar sound. But personally, I loved Blue Sky Noise. Put it this way though, The Amulet sounds more like Juturna than Blue Sky Noise.

The Amulet has its fair share of variants, which has developed into a norm for Circa Survive albums. They’re either re-pressed into oblivion or get a half dozen variants to tide people over.  The Amulet is the band’s first release on Hopeless Records, so you knew they would go overboard with variants. There are 10 variants for this record, with half of them having different covers to make the new/different variant.

Circa Survive is very heavy in VIP packages for their tours; they’ve done it for both their Juturna and On Letting Go anniversary tours, and did it again for their current co-headlining tour with Thrice in support of The Amulet. For their previous VIP packages, the band included an exclusive, alternate screen printed cover, on an exclusive vinyl color, for the latest re-press of each respective album. And The Amulet is no different.

First off let’s tackle one big hurdle. Most of the variants are based on different covers, and some of them even have completely unique jackets. There are actually two different types of gatefold jackets, and what you could call six different cover arts. It sounds confusing, I know, but I will do my best to distinguish between them. To be clear, all variants come in a gatefold jacket. It just depends on the cover art/jacket type that goes along with it.

Let’s tackle the standard artwork first. There is the standard artwork that everyone should be familiar with, which once again was done by the awesome Esao Andrews, who has done the artwork for every Circa Survive release to date. It features the girl with the shell. In total there are six total variants that come with this artwork in some form, which is on the gatefold jacket the record itself is housed in. Only one of these variants is available individually, without a special alternate cover that makes a new, different variant. It’s the “indie record store” exclusive variant, which is on half clear w/ blue splatter/half black, limited to 2500 copies. I say “indie record store” exclusive because Interpunk somehow managed to obtain copies to sell.

The other variants that come in the gatefold jacket with the standard artwork are black (widely available) limited to an unknown amount, a tour exclusive variant on clear w/ blue and black splatter, and a VIP concert ticket exclusive on silver and black swirl limited to 1,000 copies. It’s important to note that all three of these variants also come with alternate covers, which constitute a new/different variant. All the variants with this version of the jacket come with the record housed in the same full color, printed dust sleeve, and the same artwork inside the gatefold. The dust sleeve is black, with a blue and white image of a slug on one side and a bell on the other. The gatefold is an image of a waves, and it has a spot gloss finish with the artwork used for the holographic jackets, which you can read about below.

On top of the standard artwork, there are multiple alternate artworks out there; seven in total. The biggest of these alternate artwork variants though are the two that are completely unique. These two variants come packaged in holographic jackets, with the holographic feature applied everywhere on the jacket. They also feature unique, but not exclusive, artwork. You can tell from the photos below (which needs further explaining – keep reading for complete details) what this alternate artwork entails. There are two different vinyl color variants with these holographic jackets; clear, and white with “transparent” blue swirl, with both limited to 2,500 copies each. I say “transparent” blue swirl because that is what the Hopeless Records web store (hosted by MerchNow) call this variant, but on the actual record the blue is not transparent, it’s opaque/solid.

The holographic jackets were initially exclusive to Merchnow, but later became available via another merch company (keep reading). The record itself is housed in full color, printed dust sleeve. The dust sleeve design is different than the one that comes with standard artwork jackets, so it’s exclusive to these two holographic jacket variants. Instead of being black with blue and white artwork (the snail and bell), it’s white with a blue and black image the slug and a bell. The gatefold artwork features the same wave as the jackets with the standard cover art, only done in the same holographic finish that is one the outside of the jacket.

Each color variant (based on record) also comes with an exclusive letterpress of the alternate cover art featured on the gatefold jacket. The clear variant has a white letterpress and the blue with white swirl has a black letterpress. This letterpress is packaged inside the gatefold jacket, placed inside the front/first pocket of the jacket. The jacket is placed inside the second/back pocket. The holographic jacket variants shipped a bit later than the jackets with the standard artwork for an unknown reason. It was about a week later, which by vinyl standards is not much of a delay to shake your head at.

The VIP exclusive variant is limited to 1,000 copies on silver and black swirl, with the aforementioned exclusive alternate screen printed cover. The artwork for the alternate screened cover is taken from the tour poster for the band’s current co-headlining tour with Thrice. It’s a quarter fold sleeve printed on card stock, that is meant to slide over the traditional jacket of the record. The back fold of the sleeve says “FALL 2017VIP EDITION” in gold/yellow text with a line below that text, and below that line it reads “THE AMULET” in grey text with the band’s safe camp logo further below that done in the same gold/yellow ink.

On top of the exclusive variant and alternate cover, the VIP package also included a general admission ticket to the regular show, an “intimate” three song VIP ticket holder exclusive performance, meet and greet with the band, a photo opportunity, a signed setlist from the show you attended and digital files for a yet to be determined live performance from the current tour. VIP ticket prices varied depending on the venue, but they were all close to $100.

If that VIP tour exclusive screen printed cover wasn’t enough, the band partnered again with Merch Limited, a company that specializes in small run, limited edition merch, to release four exclusive variants featuring four different screen printed cover designs. The band, and Anthony Green for that matter, have worked with Merch Limited in the past to release various limited edition merch over the years; ranging from shirts and hoodies, to wall flags and blankets. These four alternate screened covers were each limited to 100 copies, with a discounted bundle for all four offered that was limited to 50 units.

These alternate screened covers are quarter fold sleeves printed on card stock, just like the VIP exclusive covers, that are meant to slide over the traditional jacket of the record. They feature cover art inspired by or taken from the imagery used for The Amulet. Two of them are on black card stock, and the other two are on are white card stock. Two of them, one on each color, is the artwork used for the letterpress included with all copies with the holographic covers. The remaining two covers, one on each color, use the image on each side the center labels. So one cover per center label image. All copies are hand numbered, in silver ink, which is done of the back fold of the sleeve. In the photo gallery below, the covers go in order as per Merch Limited’s numbering system for them. So Cover #1, followed y Cover #2, and so on.

Each of the Merch Limited alternate screen cover variants slides over one of the gatefold jackets that houses the record. Cover # 1 has the record on black vinyl with the standard artwork gatefold jacket, Cover #2 has the tour variant of the record on clear with blue and black splatter in the standard artwork gatefold jacket, Cover # 3 has the holographic jacket variant with the clear record and Cover # 4 has the holographic jacket variant with the white with blue swirl record.

I was fortunate enough to be checking a message board within minutes of these Merch Limited exclusive covers/variants being announced and put up for sale, so I was able to grab a bundle for all four covers. Had I not seen it I likely would have missed out, or at the very least been forced to spend an additional $15 buying each of the four covers individually, because bundle sold out in about one hour.

As expected particular cover designs were more popular than others, and they sold out faster. Cover #2 seemed to be the most popular and it was the first cover to sell out on its own, which happened later in the night the day the pre-orders went live. It took roughly two days for the rest of the covers to sell out, which was surprising considering how limited these variants are and how rabid Circa’s fan base is. My best guess as to why it took so long for a Circa Survive variants limited to 100 copies a piece to sell out; lots of people were burnt out on variants by this point.

These Merch Limited pre-orders went live the same day as the album’s release date; September 22, 2017. But pre-orders for the album had been up since July 10. On top of that, these variants weren’t exactly on the cheap side. They cost $25 each or $85 for the bundle for all four covers. So on top of likely already having pre-ordered or received a copy of the record, or as many of the variants as they wanted by this point, people probably were tapped out financially considering the two holographic cover variants cost $25 each before shipping and the standard cover variants cost around $20 each before shipping. So you do the math; $50 plus shipping for the two holographic jackets, around $40 for the two standard cover variants (more for shipping if you bought online) and roughly $100 for the VIP ticket, then at least another $85 for these four Merch Limited variants a few months after you already spent close to if not more than $200 on this album.

Once the Merch Limited exclusive variants started shipping, at the end of October like they were scheduled to, there was a major problem. Someone at Merch Limited screwed up royally, as many of the alternate covers were folded incorrectly. They were folded smack dab in the middle of the artwork that is supposed to be the cover art. And what is supposed to be the back portion of the sleeve, the small ¼ fold portion, where the numbering is done, is folded so it is part of the front cover.  This seemed to affect random orders, both those that were for the bundle and individual covers. But this hasn’t stopped flippers from trying to flip these for more than three times original cost, as there is someone right now trying to sell the bundle with all four cover variants for $300; and it’s for covers that are folded wrong.

People with these incorrectly folded contacted Merch Limited and received varied responses to sort out the problem. Initially it took a while for Merch Limited to respond. Once they did, it seems quite a few people received a response from Merch Limited saying they didn’t have any extra/additional covers around so they couldn’t send replacements. Instead offering free merch from other artists they’ve worked with to make up for the issue. I, on the other hand, was able to receive replacement covers. I have no idea how it worked out in my favor. I sent them a polite, but stern email expressing my disappointment, and asked for replacement covers as a way to resolve the problem. Maybe the key was I replied to an already existing customer service inquiry. Because the identical email I sent to through via their ‘contact us’ form on their web site never received a reply.

Another minor complaint by comparison, that people had was that they received numbered covers that didn’t match. So for example, people who order a bundle for all four covers, or placed an order for multiple copies but a copy of differing covers, received Cover #1 numbered 10, but received a copy of Cover #2 that was numbered 11. Another combination I heard was having two or three of the covers numbered the same, but having one or two of them with a different number. What happened here was that Merch Limited screwed up again obviously. There is no excuse for this mistake either. As they should have set aside 50 of each cover and numbered them sequentially 1-50. Then numbered the rest 51-100. There should have been two separate piles of covers so people who ordered the bundles didn’t receive various numbers.

But the likely reason for the mismatched numbers is that say the first order was a person ordering only one of the covers, then the second order was for a bundle. If Merch Limited was making (by making I mean folding), or even just numbering the covers as they packaged orders, and assuming they packaged orders in the order they were received, that first order received a cover with number 1. So the rest of covers fell out of sequence until there was an order that evened things out again. But fulfilling orders like that is a rabbit hole because all it takes to go back out of sequence is someone not ordering a bundle. Personally, I received covers that all had the same number, and a relatively low one; 19.

All variants come with specific hype stickers on the gatefold jacket cover (one that houses the record), which denotes the color of the record found inside the jacket. The variants with the standard artwork all have large, clear rectangle stickers placed towards the top right corner that say what the variant is; “black vinyl,” “tour vinyl,” “VIP vinyl” or “indie exclusive splatter vinyl.” The variants with the holographic jackets have a small black circle sticker placed in the top right corner that say what the color is, along with what the variant is limited to. All copies, regardless of variant, also come with a download card. But this download card leads you to terrible 160 kbps MP3s. It’s a lame move on Hopeless’ part. Considering all the variants they churned out for this release, you think they least they could do is include high quality MP3 files with the download card.

For the photo gallery below, here is the order of the photos: Pics 1-4 are the Merch Limited Cover #1, pics 5-8 are the Merch Limited Cover #2, pics 9-12 are the Merch Limited Cover #3, pics 13-16 are the Merch Limited Cover #4, pics 18-33 include everything with both variants in/with the holographic jackets, pics 34-43 include everything with both variants in/with the standard jackets and pics 44-48 are examples of how the Merch Limited incorrectly folded covers arrived to everyone who received them (not just me).

If anyone wants to buy or trade for the incorrectly folded covers leave a comment with your email address and we can work out a deal via email (I won’t approve the comment so your email address won’t be made public. But I will still be able to read it) Thinking somewhere along the lines of $10 per cover plus shipping; only selling all 4 covers together, I won’t sell any covers individually or in a bundle/lot less than 4. These covers are folded incorrectly, as some have a crease/fold going through the cover artwork, and some are folded backwards so the back flap is part of the cover instead of being on the back. Willing to negotiate a price or trade for other records. I can send photos of the damaged/incorrectly folded covers, though some are included in the photo gallery below to illustrate how poor of a job Merch Limited did folding these coves.

Well, if you wanted Portugal. The Man to inexplicably become a hip-hop band, you got your wish. With their latest train wreck of an album, Woodstock, they’re appealing to the lowest common denominator. Somehow the lead single “Feel It Still” went gold, which just proves how bad America’s taste in music actually is. They make jokes about selling out and sell t-shirts saying “I Like Portugal. The Man Before They Sold Out;” but that is exactly what they did. They even have hype men, yes, men, not one lone hype man, perform on stage with them. All they do is flail their arms around trying to get the crowd to put their arms in the arm, but maybe 10 people actually do it. The rest just stand there. These hype men also double as background dancers. Fall Out Boy doesn’t even have choreography. That speaks volumes of what Portugal. The Man has become. They barely get any applause after songs now. I would say it’s sad, but they brought this upon themselves.

You could see their sound start to shift on their last album, Evil Friends, but I don’t think anybody saw Woodstock coming. I really enjoyed Evil Friends, but I find Woodstock a complete disgrace. The band has resorted to making memes poking fun at how bad Woodstock is. But hey, they landed another big national commercial spot with one of their songs, so who cares right?

To make matters worse, the vinyl version of Woodstock was delayed, with the deluxe box set delayed even longer than the standard vinyl version. To make up for this the band and/or their label, Atlantic Records, decided to send everyone who pre-ordered the deluxe wooden box set a special gift to make up for the long wait. This special gift was a “no vinyl” version of the album. This “no vinyl” version is literally an empty jacket. The jacket is about a plain as you can get too; plain white with a white embossing of Atlantic’s logo in the center, and a hype sticker in the top left corner explaining the “no vinyl” version. On the back are fake excuses as to why the vinyl version of Woodstock is delayed, and mixed into it are quasi political statements. Also included with the “no vinyl” version is an exclusive poster and download card.

Because the deluxe box set was delayed even further, the band and/or label decided to further apologize for it by sending everyone who pre-ordered a copy of the standard vinyl version free of charge. They supposedly sent out emails to everyone who pre-ordered the deluxe box set explaining this, but I never got one. Which resulted in me having to email customer service asking what was going on with order to finally receive my free copy of the standard version. This standard version comes in a gatefold jacket that has the traditional album art on it.

I finally received my copy of the deluxe box set on October 10, 2017, after a yet another delay. Initially, the deluxe box set was suppose to come be released on September 29, but it got pushed to the next week and didn’t started shipping till October 5. And let me say, the deluxe box set was not worth the wait. It’s a severe disappointment. The price tag for the deluxe box set was $40 plus shipping, which was an additional $9 for me.

The mock up given with the deluxe box set in the band’s official web store was 95% accurate, and it was listed as soon as pre-orders went live at the end of May 2017. No idea why it took so long to be released. Here is what comes with the deluxe box set: the record on 180 gram black vinyl packaged in an exclusive printed inner sleeve, “Feel It Still” 7” featuring alternate takes of “Feel It Still” with perforated blotter paper insert, a 24” x 36” fold out poster, six 8” x 10” band photos, a button, a slipmat, three sticky passes, a Bumper Sticker and a download card. All that stuff comes packaged in a hard cover slip lid box, which has the artwork from the standard vinyl version on it. The cover art and artwork on the back of the jacket are replicated on the box set. Even the artwork from inside the gatefold jacket with the standard version is replicated on the box set, as it’s printed inside the lid.

I mentioned above that the mock up in the band’s official web store was 95% accurate; here is where it differs. The mock up shows the “Feel It Still” 7” being on black vinyl when in fact it’s on maroon or ox blood colored vinyl. The 7” features four different alternate takes of “Feel It Still.” The album version of the song is not found on the 7”. Here is the track listing for the 7”:

A1 – Feel It Still (Alt-Structure Pre-Final)

A2 – Feel It Still (Day One)

B1 – Feel It Still (Structure Rework)

B2 –  Feel It Still (So Young Placeholder)

The 7” also comes with a blotter paper insert. It really has nothing to do with the record itself; while it somewhat relates to the band, it’s a completely random and unnecessary thing to include with a record. If you don’t know what blotter paper is, at least in the context it’s meant to be in for this instance, it’s most commonly used for dropping acid. Doses of LSD are most commonly distributed on little square sections of blotter paper, and the insert with this 7” has the perforations to divide it up by these tiny squares.

It’s important to note that depending on how you view things; the box set 7” may in fact be the second pressing of the single/release, as it was pressed as a 5” flexi post card for Record Store Day (RSD) that was only available from Music Millennium, an indie record store in Portland, Oregon, the band’s defacto hometown. It was mainly a gimmicky promo item and was used to gain entry into the band’s instore performance at Music Millennium on RSD. The store did put remaining copies of the flexi post card up for sale online for $5 plus shipping. Some people who bought copies online said they arrived bent, which isn’t surprising. I held off on buying the flexi post card once the deluxe box set was announced because I’d rather have an actual record than a flexi if given the choice. I do collect flexis though.

The other inaccuracy is not so much an inaccuracy but an omission. There was no mock up given for the slip mat. As you can tell from the photo below, it’s classic Portugal. The Man artwork, which was likely done by The Fantastic The, or better known as John Gourley, front man of Portugal. The Man. Those two things are the only things different from the mock up.

The sticky passes are a bit of a disappointment. They were advertised as being similar to VIP or Backstage Passes distributed at shows, and they’re very small. Most passes I’ve seen and been issued at shows/festivals are far bigger. A slight mix up with the sticky passes included in this box set is that they have “All Access Photo” printed on them, so they’re technically not VIP or Backstage Passes; they’re press/media pass replicas.

The poster, while on the large side, is a bit of a disappointment too. Especially when compared to the poster that was included with the “no vinyl” version. Instead of artwork, one side is a terrible live photo of just John (not worth mentioning the roadie in the background) while the reverse side has the lyrics printed on it. So if you were only to buy this deluxe box set of Woodstock, the only way to read the lyrics as you listen to the album is to awkwardly deal with this huge fold out poster.

The six 8” x 10” band photos are black and white promo photos of each band member. Most of them are horrible photos, either silhouettes or literally a shot of their backs as they walk on stage. Look at the photos of them below and judge for yourself. The button is on the large side, the item listing on the band’s web store says it’s 2.5”, and I believe it. It’s a bland button though, black background with white lettering reading Wood Stock on two lines. Same with the bumper sticker. It’s all black with white lettering, having lyrics from “Feel It Still” printed in large font. The bumper sticker is actually two separate stickers. One large one with the lyrics printed on it and a much smaller one with the band’s logo and ‘1966’ and ‘1986.’

When pre-orders for Woodstock went live, the listing for the deluxe box set made it clear the record would not come in any sort of jacket, especially not the gatefold jacket the standard vinyl version came in. That it would come in a “printed inner sleeve.” Well, that is part true. The box set does come with a printed inner sleeve, it’s just that the record does not actually come in it. I know I’m splitting hairs, but it’s worth mention because the record comes in a plain black paper dust sleeve. This printed inner sleeve is exclusive to the box set. It’s different than the one that comes with the standard vinyl version. But it’s not much to speak of however. It’s all black with white font that just has ‘1966’ printed on one side and ‘1986’ printed on the other side.

I already touched on the “no vinyl” version, and the deluxe box set version, now it’s time to delve into the standard vinyl version. It comes housed in a gatefold jacket, with the record coming in a very thin printed dust sleeve on glossy paper. Standard printer paper is actually thicker than the paper used for this dust sleeve. For what might be the first pressing, the record is pressed on 180 gram black vinyl, just like the record that comes with the deluxe box set. A download card is included. The artwork inside the gatefold jacket is liner notes. It’s a lame move, as liner notes typically go on the dust sleeve or insert.  The printed dust sleeve with the standard vinyl version does have the lyrics printed on it, with the corresponding lyrics printed on its respective side. It appears the a-side is dubbed “1966” and the b-side is dubbed “1986,” which is taken from the now gold status single, “Feel It Still.”

For what might be the second pressing of the standard vinyl version, which was announced in August 2017, is on pink vinyl. It’s part of the “Ten Bands One Cause” campaign, which has the funds from sale go to Gilda’s Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 1989. No word on pressing info for this second pressing, but Discogs says it’s limited to 3,000 copies. Don’t believe that number because pressing info was no officially released for this record. That is the cute thng about Discogs, anyone with an account can edit any release, entering in incorrect info for whatever reason. The pink variant/pressing costs the same as the 180 gram black variant from first pressing; around $18.

I saw might be first/might be second because all vinyl versions of Woodstock were delayed for so long it’s impossible to tell if the label went back and pressed the pink copies after the black copies. Originally slated for a June release, the standard vinyl version did not ship till early August, and the deluxe box set version did not ship till early October. It wouldn’t surprise me if they delayed releasing the standard vinyl version to not take away sales of the breast cancer pink variant/pressing. The pink variant/pressing was announced in late August with a release date in early October.

It’s worth noting that even with all the delays, this record sound terrible. It’s not just the music on it that is awful, the sound quality of the pressing itself is bad. It’s mixed too low, it’s muddy and just downright terrible in terms of sound quality. This means they likely used not just an MP3/digital master, but a low quality one at that. Lots of people are reporting in that this record sounds awful, so it appears to be a widespread problem regardless of people’s setups. I don’t often discourage people from buying a record(s), but given how bad this album is in general, combined with the poor sound quality of this pressing, I would not recommend anything waste their money on the vinyl version of Woodstock.

If anyone wants to buy a copy of the standard vinyl version, in the gatefold jacket on 180 gram black vinyl, still factory sealed please leave a comment. $15 ppd shipped to the USA only. Don’t want to sell this internationally/outside the USA.

Just for reference, here is the order of the photos below: “no vinyl” version and all associated items photos 1-3. Standard vinyl version photos 4-7. Deluxe box set and all associated items photos 8 to the end.

 

 


While I normally don’t sell stuff on this blog, or in general, I need to get rid of some things. This is the start of a thinning out process of doubles I’ve accumulated over the years along with getting rid of things I no longer listen to. Prices are set on all this for the most part. Except for the Alkaline Trio box and the Look Mexico and Lifetime collections I’m trying to sell as a lot, mainly because I have no idea what someone will pay for the stuff, but I’m not looking for crazy money. Yes, I am a bit late hopping on the Christmas present buying craze. So here are the ground rules:

Only the things on this list are for sale. Do not ask about anything else featured on this blog or anything that is not on the below list. Deals will be made for anyone who buys more than 1 thing. I’ll only ship to the USA. Paypal as payment only. So no bitcoin, Stripe or any of that other nonsense. If a color is not mentioned then it’s on black vinyl. Most of this stuff is either factory sealed or in NM condition. If it’s bad shape I’ll make note of it. If you’re concerned about condition as for pics and I will provide them.

If you’re interested in anything please leave a comment with what you’re interested in and your email address, and we can work out a deal. I will not make the comments public, so people will not get your email address or any other info, but I will be able to see it in order to reply to you via email. The subject line of such email responses will be “Stitches and Grooves record sale.” any questions or concerns about anything up for sale feel free to ask. I’m pretty firm on prices but if you don’t like a pice comment with an offer and we can try to work out a deal.

Everything will be mailed in either an LP or 7″ mailer. I should have plenty to go around, but if I run out I will let you know before making payment. Opened records will be shipped outside the jacket to avoid seam splits. Factory sealed records will not be opened under any circumstances. I know how to package records for shipping, plenty of bubble wrap and/or cardboard inserts will be used to try to minimize damage as best as possible.
